Holy Flying Fido! This just in: Hudson Valley DockDogs is pleased to announce its second regional event, “THE JUMPIN JAMBOREE,” July 24 and July 25 at Ledgewood Kennels, 639 Smithfield Road, Millerton, NY. There will be two days of jumping, flying, and splashing dogs from throughout New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and as far as New Hampshire, Vermont and even Pennsylvania.
“Last year’s “Jumpin Jamboree” was a splashing success” says, Todd Brayne, vice president of the Hudson Valley Dock Dog Club. “Everyone enjoyed watching the various high flying dogs. Even the speed swimmers in the Speed Retrieve competition were intense. Tenths of a second were recorded between 1st and 2nd place. I can’t begin to imagine what this year’s competitors will bring to the pool.”
The “Jumpin Jamboree” promises to be even bigger and better this year, especially with the new addition of Extreme Vertical to the event schedule. The “Jumpin Jamboree” is open to all. Newbies or non-competitors are welcome to practice in between waves for $10. Spectators are encouraged to come and watch. Admission is free.
